AtlasEdge Unveils Leeds Data Centre

London, United Kingdom – Thursday, 21st March 2024

AtlasEdge, a leading pan-European Edge data centre provider, today announces the opening of its Leeds data centre.

Located just four miles from the centre of Leeds, the new site provides connectivity, colocation, and cloud services in one of the UK’s fasting growing cities economically and an increasingly influential digital hub. With Hardy Fisher Services established as the anchor customer, the site has already attracted significant demand from local businesses as well as multinational platforms, enterprises, and connectivity providers.

After acquiring the largest purpose-built data centre in Leeds in 2022, AtlasEdge has since invested more than £13 million to transform the site. The new facility is the first Tier 3 standard data centre in the city and represents a best-in-class regional aggregation hub.

AtlasEdge Leeds at a Glance:

  • Unmatched Reliability: Upgraded to Tier 3 standard
  • Robust Power Supply: State-of-the-art intake substation, upgraded transformer, and switchgear, plus additional generators and UPS systems
  • Environmentally Conscious Operations: Energy-efficient cooling systems, designed to minimise our carbon footprint
  • State of the Art Security Measures: Newest smoke detection, fire suppression, access control, and security systems
  • High Customer Demand: Significant interest from existing and new customers

Today’s announcement follows the opening of AtlasEdge’s second Hamburg data centre last month, as well as a key acquisition in Vienna earlier this month, and further consolidates the company’s sizeable European footprint, which spans 19 different metros across 12 countries.

“We are delighted to be launching this site, the first of its kind in Leeds and one which is purpose-built to serve growing requirements for lower latency, higher performance and localised solutions. This is yet another example of us taking a site with existing connectivity, and leveraging our combined expertise to deliver an outstanding new facility which will act as an important regional aggregation hub and support the next wave of growth in digital infrastructure for the surrounding area.”

Giuliano Di Vitantonio, CEO, AtlasEdge

“The infrastructure that this state-of-the-art data centre brings to Leeds is game-changing, and, as an anchor customer, we are very proud to support this launch. It allows companies to have the connectivity they need around the clock, the security to mitigate against internal and external risks, a manned site and technical team for support, and carbon efficiency thanks to the cooling systems that are used. It’s the full package, and it’s available on our clients’ doorstep. We are pleased to be playing an integral part in helping the West Yorkshire Combined Authority to achieve its digital objectives, including supporting businesses to exploit new digital technologies and take advantage of the opportunities for business growth through data.

David Cusworth, EMEA Managing Director, Hardy Fisher Services
